Yasmin Qureshi MP

             

There’s been much debate surrounding Pakistan’s status on the travel red list. I have personally received lots of correspondence on the issue.
I know that there are many of my constituents concerned about needing to see family, or family unable to come to the UK because of the new restrictions.
As Chair of the APPG on Pakistan, alongside

Rushanara Ali,  Rehman Chishti and  Afzal Khan MP
I wrote to the PM about this very issue and outlined the concerns of colleagues and myself.
